Marcus Rashford bails out Man United in narrow win vs. Benfica

Romelu Lukaku

While Mourinho's men have yet to drop a point in Group A, Benfica have yet to win one.

It is worth noting that for Manchester United this was another dry match, and therefore you need to pay tribute to the appropriate strategy Mourinho.

United make their return to Champions League action tomorrow night with a trip to struggling Portuguese giants Benfica. This victory, although not very convincing, was important psychologically, since before that Benfica had drawn with Maritim 1: 1, and also lost to Basel in the Champions League with a score of 5: 0.

Svilar made history as the Champions League's youngest-ever goalkeeper at 18 years and 52 days, but his disappointing positional judgement resulted in Marcus Rashford scoring the decisive goal 26 minutes from time.

Benfica continued to force the issue as the first period approached its mid-point, with Jimenez winning his fair share of aerial battles against Chris Smalling and Lindelof.

"But I do foresee that in the future Lindelof will be a player of Jose Mourinho's team".

Reporters later said the animal was confirmed to be a bull, and had been cornered in a baseball dugout. The New York Daily News reported Tuesday that the loose cow escaped from a slaughterhouse.

The first-half was a fairly tame affair as Benfica failed to break down the visitors' defence and were restricted to speculative shots from range, while United's best chance fell to Henrikh Mkhitaryan on the break but he blazed his effort well wide of the target.
